Grandmother Tea

Recently, I gave my boss a grandmother tea.  She was about to be a brand new grandmother, and know, grandmother "stuff".  Really, it's just an excuse to have a little party and honor someone who deserves to be honored!

It was a very small gathering, just our office staff and her daughter. 

I served everything buffet style, and took the opportunity to use my real depression and "new" depression glass. 

The real depression glass is the Green Cameo Ballerina. I danced many years of my life, and have a degree that enables me to teach dance in public school...although I only student taught and substituted at a magnet school for a short time. So...anything with ballerinas catches my eye.  When I first saw this, I knew I'd be collecting it. 

The "new" depression glass is the Pink Madrid.  Although it's not real depression glass, it is about 20 years old. I also used some pink milk glass that I bought years ago.

I bought the teapot at an estate sale.  It's Homer Laughlin...but I'm not sure of the pattern.

It was also a great time to use my embroidery machine.  Baby, parents, and "Honey"...which by the way is also MY grandmother name...are doing well!


  1. Love your very thoughtful tea! The dishes were perfect - I just love Homer Laughlin - there are so many styles! Maybe someone will recognize it.
    God Bless,
